An IQ score - if it is accurate - generally does not change drastically as a person ages. A child with a low IQ usually becomes an adult with a low IQ, and a child with an IQ in the gifted range will usually grow up into an adult with higher than average intelligence. Test scores are based on the age of the person who took it, so the person who takes the test is being compared to other people of their same age. Your daughter is being compared to other 10 year olds.
No matter what the age of the person who took the test, statistically average IQs are from 90 to 110. So your daughter is in the high average range. Compared to other 10 year olds, she scored slightly better than average. That's great - she has the ability to become a productive adult.
People get way too hung up on IQ scores. I have known people with IQs in the 70s (slow learners) who became highly successful adults because they were motivated, worked hard, and developed their skills. And I have also known adults with genius IQs in the 150s who were miserably unhappy and couldn't hold down a job, despite their high Intelligence Quotients. There is absolutely no correlation between IQ score and happiness or satisfaction with ones own life.
So you can be glad that your daughter is likely to be able to do well at school. Encourage her to pursue her interests, have friends, and find out what makes her truly happy, in addition to encouraging her to do her best at school.
100 is normal
Yes. The average score is 100. Anything below is below average. Anything above is above average. Genius is around 140 - 150 and above.
thats great you must be proud i know 30 year old that have an i.q like a shoe size ..single digit
100-115 is average range
115-130 is high average range
130 -145 is gifted
145+ is genius
Your kid scored in the average range, along with 50% of the U.S. population. She should be smart enough to have an ok life.
Absolutely! The last time I took a test my IQ was 125 and I bet it's even higher now because I enjoy exercising my mind. The one thing you may have to be concerned about is that many people seem to fear people who think differently than the norm. Many scientist like Nicola Tesla and others may be misrepresented as crackpots because many people did not understand what they were doing at the time. Einstein had an IQ of 160 to 180 and he only got Cs in math because people did not recognize his potential at the time. An IQ of 111 is very good for a 10 year old!
This is more normal for a 10 year old, than it is for a 20 year old.
IQ is judged on the level of knowledge for that person, compared against the level of knowledge for an "average" child of that age.
It is much EASIER for a 10 year old to acquire 11% more knowledge than the average 10 year old, than it is for a 20 year old to do the same. The average 20 year old would be presumed to know a whole lot more than the average 10 year old.
Its above average, but certainly normal. You should be pleased.
BTW--scales vary, but if it's one of the standard ones, she's in the upper 15-25% range.
Your daughter is really smart! That's not normal, given that normal implies the average, and your daughter is very much above the average. But it is most certainly normal in that there is no cause for concern. Congratulations on having a very intelligent daughter!
She is just normal... my suggestion is NOT to tell her that she is "just normal" Treat her as if she is a genius and expose her to as many things as possible (physical and mental) Try to find areas that she excels in and use those strengths to help her with any weaknesses.
